After the student's first quarter he or she may, on petition, carry for credit a program of more than 19 units if in the preceding quarter he or she attained at least a B average (3.0 GPA) on the total program in a minimum of 15 units. All repeated courses are to be counted in study list limits.

|(B)||Courses bearing solely letter designations are to be counted as full courses for study list purposes regardless of their unit value.|
|(C)||Student's Responsibility. The presentation of a study list by a student and its acceptance by the College evidences an obligation on the part of the student faithfully to perform the designated work to the best of his or her ability. Withdrawal from, or neglect of, any course entered on the study list, or a change in program without the formal permission of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education renders the student liable to enforced withdrawal from the University or other appropriate disciplinary action.

|(D)||Regulations as to the approval of study lists shall be such as may be adopted by the Faculty of the College.|
|452.||Minimum Progress/Expected Cumulative Progress [En 5 Jun 01]|

Units earned during a summer session at UCLA or at another accredited school and transferred to UCLA shall be counted toward expected cumulative progress. These units may not be used of offset the minimum 13 units per quarter requirement.|
|(C)||For students who enter directly out of high school, units earned under the following three circumstances are not to be counted toward expected cumulative progress: 1) Advanced Placement Examinations; 2) College Level Examinations (CLEP); and 3) enrollment in college courses while in high school or prior to admission to UCLA.|
|(D)||Transfer students entering with 90-105 units, expected cumulative progress will begin at quarter 7 as outlined in the table below. Advanced standing units upon admission will be counted toward expected cumulative progress. However, while registered and enrolled in a regular quarter at UCLA, a minimum of 13 units per quarter is required.|
|(E)||An undergraduate student who does not meet expected cumulative progress in the previous two completed quarters shall be placed on probation. An undergraduate who does not meet expected cumulative progress in the previous four completed quarters is subject to disqualification from further registration at the University.|
|(F)||A repeated course will be calculated as units passed as the first 16 units of allowable repeats. Units graded IP (In Progress) shall be counted as units passed. Units graded I (Incomplete) are not counted as units passed. When the grade I is replaced by a passing grade, the units shall be counted toward expected cumulative progress for the quarter in which the I grade is removed.|
|(G)||Petitions for exceptions to these requirements must be approved by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and may be granted only for extraordinary circumstances.|
